The Heidi Chronicles - Rep Stage

"Scoop, played with charismatic, man-child self-centeredness by Daugherty is the bad boy you’re happy to go to hell with." - DC Theatre Scene

"As Scoop Rosenbaum, the arrogant, but irresistible, man Heidi meets at a Eugene McCarthy rally in 1968, Rex Daugherty gives an incisive performance that gradually reveals the significant sliver of sincerity and doubt inside." - The Baltimore Sun

"I have not previously seen Rex Daugherty, though he comes with a distinguished pedigree, but he is a revelation. He nails Wasserstein's juicy lines, whether they are lustful, arrogant, or rueful, and makes us understand how this heel could nonetheless carve out such a large place in Heidi's heart." - Broadway World

"Daugherty takes this potentially static character and gives him heart, creating instead a vivaciously dynamic and unexpectedly honest character..." - Theatre Bloom
